    Oh, so now you're going to pretend you didn't suggest Khashoggi's state sanctioned murder was justified by the fact that he was a "bad guy"? And weren't Floyd and Blake also "bad guys" according to you? Or are you also going to pretend that you've been referring to them as upstanding citizens whose loss is a net negative for society?

    You always get driven into a corner and then claim you were never in the car.

    You suck at arguing, and at creating strawmen. I absolutely said Kashoggi's killing was ok. Are you still confused? I also said it was nothing like what happened to George Floyd. Are you still confused? It's also nothing like what happened to Jacob Blake, are you confused by this as well? This called projection. Your arguments are full of it. It's why you routinely run from me. Because you can't argue with logic and reasoning, only misplaced emotion and projection.

    Where did this happen? Want to see what this actually looks like? Why are you pro-sexual assault of minority women? I'll wait.

    You live in a fantasy land. But whatever helps you keep your ego massaged I guess.

    This exchange involved you making the (false) claim that I didn't know Khashoggi had ties to extremists and making the (false) claim that I brought his murder up to "virtue signal". But tell me more about your good-faith arguments and the offense you take over those who cast aspersions and use straw men.

    Trump says its good to sell weapons to disloyal religious supremacists

    So that means most of his followers agree

    I'll take an actual response to my actual post. Not this d*cktuck of a response. Here you go. Try again.

    People don't seem to understand that if any country wants weapons, they'll be able to purchase them. Russia is one of the biggest arms exporter, both on and off the books, and many European countries are very involved in this business as well. You're not saving any lives by preventing the US from selling them, all you're doing is losing out on profit that rival nations will then scoop up.

    They won't but they can give access to China or Russia. May not be Russia, but China is a possibility since China helped Saudi with Ballistic Missiles.

    UAE can always use the F35s as a leveraging tool against the US, i.e. consider this hypothetical : US is unhappy with UAE but US is under pressure to not put pressure on the UAE because among other things, pushing the UAE away means they will drift into China's orbit and with that give China access to F35 tech. One of the criticisms of the US pulling away from MidEast politics is that it allows China to step in.

    There is never any "there" there in your posting towards me. Responding to you is a waste of time.

    But here... I will throw you a bone... Make any decisive claim then provide a clear argument in its favor. If I don't agree with you I will directly challenge your argument. Go.

    LOL, dude, what are you babbling about? You ran again. Accept it. I'll wait for your lame attempt to try to explain how you didn't actually tuck tail and run in this thread, as per usual.

    I gave you an opportunity to put up or shut up. You chose to take a dump and beat your chest. But it helps me understand why you're so enamored with Donny. You probably think he knocked it out of the park at the town hall last night. As he proved himself a master of the dump and thump. :rolleyes:

    Damn, preemptively, called out on d*cktucking and still did it anyway. You must think other people can't read.

    Let's see if you'll dodge it for a third time. I bet you will, while acting like I'm the one dodging.
